***Transforming Education Series: Integrating the Arts into Education***

Brought to You by My Curated Information Blog, Create & Be Well

          One of the most successful education programs supported by the US federal government is not in the Department of Education but in the National Endowment for the Arts and its partner institutions in both public and private sectors.

I have posted stories from individual schools in the program on this site; today I want you to explore the entire program as it has developed over the years.
